Putting Out the RV Welcome Mat

As you are rolling down the highway this summer in your RV, you’ll want to know where you can get the best roadside service there is, which campgrounds roll out the welcome mat out and which restaurants are RV friendly.

The Good Sam Club is going to help you out with that.

“Every year, Good Sam Club members chose which companies roll out the red carpet—or, in this case, the welcome mat—of good customer service. It’s called the Welcome Mat Awards and for the Good Sam members it is an opportunity to express support and encouragement for companies that treated RVers right throughout 2006.

The honor goes to businesses across a wide spectrum of RV-related customer service, from fast food restaurants to campgrounds to NASCAR events. In all, there are 24 categories, which are voted on by the one million families in the Good Sam Club.

“RVing attracts families, baby boomers, retirees, tailgaters, outdoor enthusiasts and travelers of all kinds,” said Sue Bray, executive director for the Good Sam Club. “The Welcome Mat Awards are our members’ way of recognizing the people and businesses that make the life of an RVer more enjoyable.”
